There might be various tools that you as a business analyst would be using depending upon the work environment.The primary tools are:MS-Office (Especially Word)MS-Visio (for visualizing the concepts, creating diagrams)But a lot of bigger organizations have been using Rational Software. Rational software licensing is expensive so you might not find it being used everywhere.Rational Requisite Pro (for Requirement Management)Rational ClearCase/ClearQuest (For change management)I have also found that some places like using MS-Sharepoint, telelogic DOORS and other tools for document collaboration. I would say, keep a working knowledge of MS Sharepoint, at least.Sometimes you might end up being a BA com QA. As such, it is nice to have a working knowledge of creating Test cases, using Load Runner, QTP etc.Except for these tools if you have knowledge of RDBMS, Oracle, SQL, different operating systems, some OOP, it is always a plus.
Most of the business analysts use following Tools:
- Microsoft Office
- Microsoft Visio
- IBM Requisite Pro
- BPMN 2.0
Offcourse most important tools are communication skill and interpretation power.
As mentioned out by some of the incumbents here, Business Analysis is more to do with documentation of the requirements and how efficiently the expert communicates information across to the team devel...

while preparing Business requirements documents you mention why you need to bulit a system, i.e. problem statement. What you need to do while creating functional requirements is you have to specify is, solution of the problem. Specify thorugly business problem and explain solution for the same.Business requirement documents does not necessarrily contains solution part, functional requirement may contain it how end user wants the system to perform. Dont forget to add non-functional requirements same doc.Following is the instance of Business Requirement, Functional Requirement and Non-Functional Requirement.Business Requirements :- sales order is made against customers purchase order. Sales order is given for approval to upper authorityFunctional requirement:- Sales order shall be made with reference from Purchase order and it should be approved from upper authority.Non-Functional Requirement:- Sales order should be in proper format (Specify format) and six copy of sales order should be printed from printer in 1 minute.
